+ Size: 20 x 20 cm
Dong Son Drum was produced from about 600 BCE or earlier until the third century CE, which is one of Vietnamese culture’s finest examples of metalworking.
Designs on the highly ornamented Dong Son drums reflect a sea-oriented society.
Some have elaborate friezes of figured scenes, featuring boats and warriors wearing elaborate feather head-dresses.
Other common watery designs include bird-motifs, small three-dimensional animals (frogs or toads), long boats, fish, and geometric symbols of clouds and thunder.
Human figures, long-tailed flying birds and stylized depictions of boats are typical on the bulging upper part of the drums.
This framework can be used as a souvenir gift for foreigners who come to Vietnam
